Royal family enthusiasts wait eagerly each year for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to unveil their Christmas card, and this year’s did not disappoint.

On Dec. 10, the family’s official Instagram account @dukeandduchessofcambridge revealed the wholesome snap that will grace the front of the 2021 cards, and all I have to say is — how do I get added to the mailing list?

“Delighted to share a new image of the family, which features on this year’s Christmas card 🎄,” the caption reads. In the photo, Prince William and Kate Middleton are sitting in the back, while Prince George and Princess Charlotte are perched atop some festive-looking step ladders at each side of their patents. The youngest of the bunch, 3-year-old Prince Louis, is sitting cross-legged on a fur rug in the front.

Pictured on a private family vacation in Jordan earlier this year, the family are all smiles as they wear summer-ready outfits and pose in front of a stone background. The country holds great significance to the family — the Duchess lived in Jordan for two years as a child when her father worked for British Airways, and Prince William previously visited the country as part of a Royal tour in 2018.

While fans have delighted in the wholesome photo, there’s one factor that is proving to be a huge talking point this year: 6-year-old Princess Charlotte’s resemblance to her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

“The older Princess Charlotte is getting the more she is becoming more like Queen Elizabeth.” one person commented, while another said: “Charlotte is [the] Queen’s double!”

An overarching theme in the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Christmas cards is that they are all taken outside, as see in last last year’s photo — taken in front of a pile of chopped wood — and 2019‘s, which has the kids on a motorbike and sidecar.

Radiating pure joy, the shot gives a rustic and relaxed vibe, and you can see the happiness on each of their faces — especially on Prince Louis’.
